    i felt the foreground was missing something in this one so i put a nasty piggy thing in there, he was originally supposed to be super cute....I have no idea what happened...

    I don't have real critics to say, as your paintings are too good for me to judge, hehe.

    So i ll just say that i really love the colors on the 3 last pieces, really sweet and magic,
    and the first one doesn t give me the same "finished" feeling as the followings.

    wonderful nonetheless.

    Beautiful works! Environments are my favorite because I spent the first 10+/- years doing portraits, and never realized how deceivingly tricky envo's can be, like rocks!? How hard could that be? Hard! Like uh... like rocks I guess. Post more!

    2nd piece is my favourite for sure. I think the evil edge turned out the better option. The play of warm and cool colours really gives it depth and interest too.
    Keep painting dude, and I look forward to seeing more!

    Hell ya james i really like the work its very inticeing. Great colorwork lots of detail. Can i make a suggestion. I mean i dont know if you sell your works as prints which the way prints are all set up the sizes make the paintings a weird set up to really make a painting not look constricted ... sorry kinda draging away from the suggestion but you should make your paintings width like 1000 pixels wider. Humans have a wide viewing range and even though we focus on whats straight from our pupils we still have alot more that we see. I just feel if you had a slight wider viewing range in your work it would be so much more inticeing to the eyes. Either way good stuff!

    8D thanks everyone! and thanks for the advice Ravenseye. Someone else mentioned that to me a little while ago and i've just started doing that lately although i'm still a little uncertain about it cause it seems like it would make the piece useless for anything other than a concept environment, similar to what you were saying about prints and such. I guess i'll just have to decide as I create them Does anyone else have thoughts on this as well?
